Words On A Telephone Keypad

January 13, 2017

The digits on a telephone keypad are associated with letters; for instance, the digit 2 is associated with the letters A, B and C, and the digit 7 is associated with the letters P, Q, R and S. Thus, a word can be converted to its numeric equivalent; for instance, PRAXIS can be converted to the number 772947. The conversion is not necessarily unique, so ACT, BAT and CAT all convert to 228.

Your task is to write a program that takes a number, such as 228, and returns a list of all the words in a dictionary that are represented by that number. When you are finished, you are welcome to read or run a suggested solution, or to post your own solution or discuss the exercise in the comments below.
